On Sunday November 8, 2015, at 4 p.m. groups from five area United Methodist Churches will come together to celebrate mission purpose, achievement, and motivate each other for future plans. The Annual Charge Conference in the United Methodist Church is the governing body of the local church that makes formal reports to the District Superintendent concerning its activities and goals.
This year, for the first time, the Oklahoma Conference and its regional districts will be bringing together clusters of churches in geographical proximity. These clusters will serve as missional hubs to encourage fellowship, partnerships and inspiration. Barnard Memorial UMC will serve as host for the congregations from the UM Churches in Bowlegs, Wetumka, Wewoka, Calvin, and Holdenville.
Members of these church groups will be seated together, will vote on their church's reports simultaneously and enjoy some fellowship through refreshments before and singing during the meeting.
